Discussion: New Dudley Lightning

how does it compare with miken ultra 2 balanced ????

as far as i know, DUDLEY has not been a major seller with the senior softball community.....

sure would like to see a demo in action.

TEXAS TRANSPLANT: why are you screwing around with other bats ??

you have been wearing out the balls with the blue centenarian.....

jim- when are your grandkids leaving to go back home ? we miss you in dayball.

Discussion: looking for team

hey bob, how you doing !? hope all is well with you. i went down with a minor rotator cuff problem and a couple of small tears on my left shoulder. the issue showed up in tulsa, about 2 months ago. the pain was terrible when i threw overhand. i am still playing the outfield and i am able to throw underhand without a problem.

had an MRI done, and the doctor says it can be fixed with therapy, which i have started already. my swing has not affected, thank the lord.

next tournament for us is college station, need to get freddie qualified for SSUSA.

WE HAVE ABOUT 4 TOURNAMENTS LEFT, including college station, PLANO, DALTON AND LAS VEGAS.

IF YANKEE is interested in playing 60's tournaments, possibly ed or tommie can use him. i am not sure if they need players.

bob, are you going to college station ?

see ya ! frank a.

Discussion: IVAN DENNIS PASSES

we are still in shock here in dallas. he was a gentle giant with a kind heart, BUT A BEAST WITH THE SOFTBALL BAT.
one can never tell when it's time, meanwhile, enjoy family, friends, team-mates while one is here.
he will be sorely missed by his softball friends.

Topic: Bats
Discussion: What's the best bat for open tournaments?

i have played senior softball for about 13-14 yrs. i have fallen for the hype on new bats every year. i have bought a few based on the hype, and they are decent bats for senior softball. however, i started with the ultra 2 when it first came out, and have noticed that most new bats are always compared to the ultra 2.

the problem with the ultra 2 is the durability issue. i have broken 10-12 since i have been playing, eventually it has soaked in that once you feel the ultra 2 is broken in, you only used it during tournaments.

i have approx 10-13 bats hanging in the garage that i use ocassionally, IE: YELLOW COMBAT, AMBUSH, MIKEN 2 PIECE BALANCED, CENTENARIAN, REEBOK BALANCED, PLUS A FEW MISC OLD BATS.
while these are all good bats, they do not have the consistency of the ultra 2 .

i dont have the greatest eye for hitting the ball, most good hitters say , " hit the bottom part of the ball to create the spin ". my eyesight is not that good anymore, i just want to make good contact and see what happens.

Discussion: face masks

MAD DOG- with the thick bushy beard you have, you dont need a face mask. it's tough enough to deflect a 100 mph come-backer.....
